    We really enjoyed this! The fish was wonderful cooked in the broth and the veggies were excellent as well. I used very little cilantro but loved the oregano on top. I will most certainly make this again! Served aside asparagus for a great dinner. Made for the ZWT for team Emerald City Shakers.

    not bad. will make next time with less cilantro. was overpowering for this dish. I also added some shallots and fresh lime juice to help give some dimension to the dish.
